Cost of Attendance (COA)

To help anticipate your expected expenses, including tuition, fees, books, technology and other miscellaneous costs, we’ve summarized the estimated cost of attendance for the nine month academic year.

Students seeking financial aid for summer enrollment will need to check the “Incomplete Documents” tab in their Financial Aid portal in Howdy after Registration. Your FAFSA Student Aid Report (SAR) from the previous fall and spring semester must be on file in order to determine eligibility.
